Strolling around Mendoza city

We spent the afternoon strolling around downtown Mendoza but practically everything was closed just because it's Sunday. Ah, Catholic countries!
Although the morning was a bit frustrating trying to figure out what to do today. Had planned to rent a car and go to Maipu, visit the wine museum and possibly a vineyard. No cars available so we said fine, we'll taxi over there. Found the wine museum website, they are closed on Sundays and the vineyard we wanted to visit was booked for the day. Said ok, we'll stay in town and visit the chocolate factories, oh and there is a rental car available on Tuesday, etc etc etc. Spent about two hours like this, hovering over the poor girl at the front desk at our hotel who was gracious enough to make lots of phone calls and help us arrange everything.
